PARKINSON’S DISEASE - a contraindication for Massage, Waxing, Manicure And Pedicure, Facial, Body Wraps And Electrical Treatments, Eyelash Extensions And Perming?


Parkinson’s disease is a condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years.

Parkinson’s disease is caused by a loss of nerve cells in part of the brain called the substantia nigra. This leads to a reduction in a chemical called dopamine in the brain.

Dopamine plays a vital role in regulating the movement of the body. A reduction in dopamine is responsible for many of the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

Exactly what causes the loss of nerve cells is unclear. Most experts think that a combination of genetic and environmental factors is responsible.
